How do I beat Nix (Snow's Eidolon)?

  1. I've come this far just to get stuck. I'm playing with Snow now and can't beat Nix (the first Eidolon encountered) for the life of me. This Doom timer is what kills me cuz I can't beat the boss fast enough. I only have Commando, Sentinel, and Ravager. Can't use Ravager cuz Nix gains power from anything cold. Any tips or help would be nice cuz I'm gettin pissed off constantly dying.

  1. All you need to use is Sentinel. Do not attack, just defend.

    Manually load your Sentinel command string with Steelguard. Then time your execution of Steelguard to occur when the attacks occur. When the attack pause, hold back execution and/or take advantage to reload Steelguard.

    Be sure to be defending with Steelguard when the stronger attack at the end of the repetitive sequence of actions occurs (Wheelgrind is one of those attacks) as that is when the Gestalt gauge accumulation occurs rapidly.

    Press the "capture" key early - you might be surprised with a capture and there is no penalty for doing so.

    You should have success in three or four cycles through the action sequence.

  1. if you are able after losing the first fight double up on the paradigms so you can make use of the auto fill ATB Gauge which is when you change just as the last segment is about to be used.

    you only need to double up once


    as nix stops to use ATB Gauge charge change to the ravager and use the auto fill ATB Gauge trick

    this should be enough to beat it

  2. Just keep attacking with distant attacks. One will attack you while the other one heals you so just keep attacking with distant attacks.

  3. Like AZorro007 said, all you need is sentinel and all you need to do is use Steelguard. I had this problem too until i looked up what to do. Lol. :P
